Illinois Valley congressman says enough with small airplane seats

If you’re a larger individual, here’s a proposed law to get behind.

Republican Congressman Adam Kinzinger is co-sponsoring the “Safe Egress in Air Travel Act” or SEAT Act. The proposed law requires airlines to have a minimum seat size. Kinzinger says seats have been shrinking and the spaces between rows have shrunk over the years.

The reason for the bill is said to be for the safety of passengers, not to address the possibility that passengers are getting bigger.
